    A group of application engineers who happen to be Instructables community members, have given a Wi-Fi speaker a new twist by adding voice-control.

    Seeed studios modeled the speaker on a Gatling gun and using a ReSpeaker – their own hackable, voice-controlled, development board for audio and voice interaction. Below is the complete parts list and the step-by-step guide to building the speaker is available on the Instructables website, here.

    Here’s what what they used to create voice-controlled Wi-Fi speaker. Take a look at the parts image above as well.
